Little Blue Heron in the Lake – Nature and Wildlife 30

Little blue heron in the lake

There are 72 species of herons, bitterns and egrets in the world. 10 of species are identified in the USA.

We might find the following herons, bitterns and egrets in the Northern America (Jill Staake, 2020 in the Birds & Bloom):

- Great blue herons

- Little blue herons

- Great egret

- Snowy egret

- Green heron

- Black-Crowned Night Heron

- Yellow-Crowned Night Heron

- Cattle Egret

- Tricolored Heron

- Reddish Egret


Blue sky, just for illustration

Of those herons, bitterns and egrets, I have posted Yellow-Crowned Night Heron:

- Yellow Crown Night Heron around Our Neighborhood - Nature and Wildlife 16.


Interestingly, there are 3 stages development of little blue heron (Egretta caerulea) in respect to color:

- juvenile, entirely white color.

- immature, gradually changed to blue colors

- adult, dark blue color.


Do you know little blue heron? What color do you see in nature?

  6. We have herons here but I don't think we have as many varieties as you have in the USA. I often see them by the river Thames. Thank you for visiting my blog.

  14. Interesting that they turn from white to blue. Some white horses are born black and then turn snow white later on.
